Episode 84-Dicks of the Sea

4/9/2020
If you are a faithful listener, then you can probably guess what this episode is about: Erica (Go)'s go-go juice when recording. If you're new, then enjoy listening to the tale from Scandinavian folklore about the most awesome sea creature ever believed to have lived. And rum. Lots of rum. **The show artwork was created by Chris Axmann. Thank you, Chris! **A HUGE thank you to MinimusNoah for the music at the end of each episode.

Episode 83-Dem Covids (A Patreon Special)

3/30/2020
Erica and Billy did a Patreon episode last week that a listener had requested, talking about the current state of the world during the Covid-19 pandemic. (Of course the information was "current" as of last week.) They discussed both local and global issues, the virus and what it does to your body, symptoms to be aware of, and how to decrease your chances of contracting it. After it was released, Erica dwelled on the fact that it is information that ALL listeners should have access to, not...

Episode 82-He Wasn't on the Right Track

3/26/2020
A drunken young man. Two rifles and a shotgun. 45 minutes. Over 20 people dead or wounded. Belinda blinks. Australia...you scary! Fin. **The show artwork was created by Chris Axmann.

Episode 81-Don't Shout Your Name While Assaulting IHOP Patrons

2/27/2020
When you think of a mass shooting at a school, what do you imagine? A disgruntled male teenager that shoots up his high school is generally what we see. But what if Erica and Billy told you that there was a completely different kind of mass school shooting that happened just over 10 years ago? You'd probably say, "I bet that's what this episode is about." And you'd be right. **The show artwork was created by Chris Axmann. Thank you, Chris! **A HUGE thank you to MinimusNoah for the music at...

2/13/2020
Erica and Billy just celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary this week. And Billy suggested the topic of deathbed confessions. A little worried or guilty conscience?

Episode 79-Hot Pocket and Vagina Candle

1/30/2020
The 1920's in Detroit were weird, especially when a family of five was hacked to death with an ax. And especially when the father claimed to be mystical healer that received visions from deities in the middle of the night. And especially since he made an alter in his basement and had his own self-written 'bible' published. And especially since the case has never been solved. And Billy got a new job. Good times. **The show artwork was created by Chris Axmann. (Hee hee...no pun intended.)...

Episode 78-Did Y'all Hear About Abraham Lincoln?

1/16/2020
The American Civil War is over. The President has been assassinated. And there is a boat that's, like, gonna blow up or something. And over 1,500 people are going to die. But there's obviously nothing historical about that. Right, Lincoln? **The show artwork was created by Chris Axmann.

Episode 77-505 W. Jujitsu Lane

12/31/2019
Happy Podversary, Snugglebunnies! Erica and Billy decided to celebrate the anniversary of Martinis and the Macabre (and New Year's) by hitting your ear holes with the most horrific case of torture and murder. (Well, Billy had no part in the decision and was totally against it, but the show must go on.) It is a case so utterly horrible that Erica and Billy thought it would never be covered on the show. But over the past three years of podcasting, several listeners have suggested this case and...

Episode 76-Gonna Get In The Hot Tub

12/19/2019
Have you ever wondered how to split a knee or rip off a breast, or maybe how to properly roast a person while making their screams sound like a bull? Well, you're in luck! Erica and Billy have found some of the most grisly methods and devices of torture and are going to share them with you! Hope you have a stomach of steel because it's going to get gross... **The show artwork was created by Chris Axmann.

Episode 75-The Loneliest Red String (Pt. 2)

12/5/2019
This week's episode is the conclusion to the story of Larry Eyler, the gay sadist serial killer of the Midwest who almost didn't get caught. Erica and Billy discuss the life of Eyler, his capture and punishment, and who Billy's man-crush is--you know, the usual. Full of tangents and offensive jokes, this episode may just be the best thing to ever enter your earballs! Or the worst. The jury is still out. **The show artwork was created by Chris Axmann. Thank you, Chris! **A HUGE thank you to...

Episode 75-The Loneliest Red String (Pt. 1)

11/21/2019
How do you track a vicious serial killer that moves from state to state before the advent of online communication between jurisdictions and states? Well, some red string couldn't have hurt! It just wanted to help and no one listened! For shame! At least you'll learn how to exorcise a demon this episode, so not everything is lost... **The show artwork was created by Chris Axmann.

Episode 74-Pardon the Mess

11/7/2019
Nothing witty to say about this episode, except for the title. "Pardon" the mess? Like, prisoners get 'pardoned'? And riots make a mess? See what they did there? You know it's clever! Don't you roll your eyes, mister! **The show artwork was created by Chris Axmann. Thank you, Chris! **A HUGE thank you to MinimusNoah for the music at the end of each episode.

Episode 73-Haunted Toilet Paper

10/24/2019
Happy Halloween, Snugglebunnies! It's time to get spooky again and there's nothing spookier than a good, old-fashioned haunting. But Erica and Billy aren't going to take you to a haunted location or discuss a person who is haunted. They're going to talk about some of the most haunted objects in the world. And then Billy will ponder why generic, everyday items aren't ever haunted (hence the title). And then Erica and Billy will talk about Storage Wars, but if it were spooky. And Erica is sick...

Episode 72-He Shiska'd His Bob (Pt. 2)

10/10/2019
This week Erica and Billy bring you the conclusion to the crazy story of Donald Harvey, Angel of Death. If you thought the first episode had a lot of murder, then hold on to your murder cap because it's going to get even more murdery! (There's, seriously, a lot of murders.) But never fear! Billy's horrible dad jokes will have you seeing red, so you won't get bogged down by the voluminous numbers of murders. He's really a giver... **The show artwork was created by Chris Axmann.

Episode 72-He Shiska'd His Bob (Pt. 1)

9/26/2019
This week, Erica and Billy discuss one of the most prolific and unique serial killers in America. His crimes spanned 17 years, during which he officially killed 37 people, though some estimates are much higher. He killed men, women, white, black, middle-aged, elderly, using a variety of M.O's through the years. He was so proficient that most of his murders weren't even discovered to be murders until he told the authorities that they were. And also in this episode, lots of laughs, per usual....

Episode 71-It's All Zeros

9/12/2019
On the Martinis and the Macabre, Erica and Billy talk a lot about murder. Like, seriously, a LOT. So, every once in awhile it's refreshing to take a stroll in the weird. And what's weirder than some of the world's most curious objects and unexplained happenings? From Roman dodecahedrons to being frozen by "Sub-Zero" temperatures, there's a lot to ponder this episode. When you're done listening, let us know what you think is the hidden story behind each one of the topics on social media! And...

Episode 70-Dance Party!

8/29/2019
Remember when Erica and Billy discussed "Squatters, Incest, and...Octopus?" last season in Episode 50 about the Hinterkaifeck murders? Well, if you haven't listened to it, go do that now and then come back. This case is very similar, except this one was "solved". Or was it? Did the man convicted of murdering 8 people on a farm in North Dakota confess because he was guilty, or were there other factors involved? Can meatballs be put on grilled cheese? And were there really even any murders or...

Episode 69-Maybe He's Really Good at Hammerball

8/15/2019
Life was a bit strange in England in the 1930's, as is this murder mystery surrounding the murder of a woman bludgeoned to death during an extremely small window of time while her husband was seemingly lured away from the home. But did the husband set up the whole scenario to give himself an alibi or was someone set on getting him away from the house so they could make their move? Erica and Billy will tackle this unsolved case this week, as well as discussing the fine sport of Hammerball....

Episode 68-You Mispronounced "Mormon"

8/1/2019
In this week's episode, Erica and Billy discuss a woman with one of the longest standing arrest warrants in U.S. history-a widow, a mother, a triple murderer, and a Mexican prison escapee! They'll also delve into NOT stealing from liquor stores, what qualifies someone as Mormon, NOT stealing from liquor stores, politics, NOT stealing from liquor stores, and butt stuff. (And not stealing from liquor stores.) And there's a special intro from Baller patron Kirsten! Buckle in, cause it's a wild...

Episode 67-It Tastes Like Fire

7/18/2019
In this episode, Erica and Billy clown around discussing one of the worst fire disasters in U.S. history. And it happened in a place you would least expect it, which makes it super funny (at least to Erica Go-she's really dark). So step right up and witness one of the greatest spectacles this 3-ring circus of a podcast can provide! **The show artwork was created by Chris Axmann.
